Justice?


Here is the outcome of the jury trial that I was almost picked for:

Gunman Sent to Prison for Normal Heights Gas Station Shooting

I'm glad I was not picked for this jury. Even if he is guilty, I would feel bad to send such a young person to prison for so long. You just know he's not going to come out any better.

Yes, yes...go ahead and say it - Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. I know. I still would feel bad.

Quakers believe that there is "an inward light, a spark of the Divine, that of God in every person." If that is true then this young man, in spite of what he has done, deserves compassion.

I'm with the Quakers on this one.
